Jose Mourinho 'retires' a watch with each trophy win

Published Add your comment

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed he retires a watch with each trophy he wins - and says he's hoping to let another one go come May.

The Special One has so far won 21 trophies in his career, and looks poised to add another one with the Blues three points clear at the top of the Premier League with two games in hand of Manchester City.


Mourinho locked away one watch when Chelsea beat Tottenham in the Capital One Cup at the start of this month - a Hublot King Power Special One which costs roughly $30,000 - and says he will do the same if the Premier League trophy works its way to Stamford Bridge this term.

He said: 'When I win titles the gifts I buy are for my wife, my daughter and my son. But I take my watch from my wrist and I keep it. Instead of medals, I keep a watch. When I finish a season with a trophy, that season is represented with a watch. They're in a safe box. In this moment, I have a sponsorship deal but, previously, they weren't a particular brand.


'Previously, it was just a watch that I could feel comfortable with, especially as I come from the time when not every stadium had a digital clock and even if some did they finished at 90 minutes.

'My favourite one is the last one, as I designed it with the company and the company did it for me according to my needs - to wear on the bench with the colours I want and material and size and weight.


Chelsea take on Hull in the Premier League this afternoon, and their only injury worry for the game is midfielder John Obi-Mikel.

Mourinho said ahead of the game that some of his players were carrying knocks but didn't reveal who, so there's a chance he could rotate his team for the game against the Tigers.

Do you think Chelsea will EVER win the Champions League under Mourinho?
